NOTE: Refer to the images for guidance

Glitter Birds
What you do:
1. Insert a toothpick into the tip of a foam ball . Use this as a handle (keeping the process tidy).
2. Using a brush, paint school glue over the area you want to cover with glitter. Use the sprinkle feature of the glitter shaker to shake glitter evenly over the area. Note: Doing this over a sheet of paper will allow you to catch access glitter to put back into the shaker, avoiding any wastage. Set aside and allow the glue to dry completely for 1 hour.
3. Continue this process over all areas until you have completely covered the polystyrene ball in glitter.
4. Cut small shapes to form wings & a beak from felt sheets and glue these onto the foam ball with the glue gun.
5. Adhere the joggle eyes using a glue gun, allow to set.
6. Add a tail to your bird by embellishing with assorted feathers.
7. Finish by gluing a loop of ribbon to the top. It is now ready to hang on your Christmas tree!
